 Hey big spender!

These folks really knew how to drop a dime for better or for worse.

Mostly for worse.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    re: that village? Considering how worthless “law and order” have proven, heck, even here in the US for sex crimes, I don’t blame the villagers one bit. They’re not getting justice for the women whose lives have been ruined, first by the initial crime and then again after that by the way society treats them.

    That Forbes article ‘Want to be rich? Salary alone won’t get you there’ was very interesting. Over 45% of income coming from Capital Gains I would have never guessed, I thought Partnerships and Corporations would have been a bit higher. It would be interesting to know if the IRS broke down the categories further. It would be nice to find out what percentage was public vs private companies for the capital gains

      I agree. I thought businesses would be higher with dividends or something but Cap Gains makes sense particularly with the way the markets bounced back this year.

    Ooh…I like the Madewell link. Before I saw this, I was brainstorming an article about “old” companies that have basically just bought their names and history. There are quite a few of them. I was looking into Hunter boots recently because I like how they look and I knew they had a long history. But I learned that now they’re made in China (of course), and the company has changed hands several times. It’s frustrating to realize that so many brands are nothing but smoke and mirrors.

      UGGs too. That’s why I bought Aigle rainboots.
